The PowerCore PCI mkII fits into a standard PCI/PCI-X slot and the PowerCore Express fits into a PCI Express slot – that’s the only difference between the two cards. Both of them come with the same amount of plug-ins and feature set and they are a potent combination between 14 state-of-the-art processing plug-ins and 4 x 150 mHz DSPs. The plug-in bundle that comes with the PCI and the Express card, consists of the 14 plug-ins known from PowerCore FireWire, leaving you with a bunch of versatile and professional tools, and it sports the same performance as the rack-based PowerCore FireWire.

PowerCore PCI mkII and PowerCore Express are designed for professional audio tasks, and with the included and optional plug-ins, they can be optimized for a variety of applications such as mastering, vocal processing and sound design. The PCI card and the Express card are the obvious choice for any professional sound engineer or producer with a VST, AU or RTAS compatible audio system.

For songwriters, composers and everybody else that care about sound quality and serious plug-ins, the PowerCore platform is the perfect match.
